This course is identical to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice (C09067), with the exception that there is no Diploma in Professional Engineering Practice requirement.

This program is a comprehensive preparation for careers in the professional practice of engineering. Students learn to deal with complex systems and manage large-scale projects using the most appropriate emerging technologies.

Typical study program

Most of the subjects are offered in both Autumn and Spring sessions, sometimes as day classes and sometimes as evening classes. The programs provided below for each major show a suggested sequence for students commencing in Autumn session undertaking the course full time. The program for students undertaking the Civil Engineering major beyond Year 1 depends on which specialisation is chosen.

Course fees

For relevant fee information, are you a Local student or International student

All students at UTS pay tuition fees to contribute towards the cost of their studies.

In 2017 all offers made to domestic undergraduate students will be for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP), which means that the Australian government makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of your education, and you pay the balance through student contributions.

The amount you pay depends on your area of study and the number of credit points (cp) in which you enrol. At UTS 48 credit points is considered to be one Equivalent Full Time Study Load (EFTSL).

The table to the right shows the amount a student can expect to pay for one year of full-time study (1.0 EFTSL).

Students can choose to pay their student contribution upfront, or if eligible, can defer their fees through HECS-HELP.

In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay a Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). The purchase of textbooks and other course materials may also result in additional cost.

You can calculate your student contribution as a percentage of the amounts shown on the table.
e.g. If you are enrolled in a 6 credit point Mathematics subject, your contribution would be 6/48 x $9,050 = $1,131.

Tuition fees for international undergraduate students can be found using tuition fees search.

Tuition fees must be paid in advance each session and are subject to annual increase. Fees for future year(s) published in fees search, whilst unlikely to change, are estimates only. UTS makes every effort to provide up to date future year(s) fee estimates and to limit any changes, however, UTS reserves the right to vary fees for future year(s) at any time.


For this course, the cost per credit point for 2017 is $755. The total credit points are 198.

All international students should familiarise themselves with the following documents:

In addition to tuition fees, students may be required to pay a Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). Textbooks and other course materials will also result in additional costs.
